The U.N. climate change conference in Copenhagen revealed a very real, legitimate divide between the developed world, which favors aggressive action to curtail harmful emissions, and developing nations, who oppose strict, universal standards. There is looking out for one’s own interests, however, and then there is Lumumba Stanislas Dia-ping, Sudan’s delegate to the conference. He described the Copenhagen Accord, the basic agreement that was reached, as “a solution based on values, the very same values in our opinion that funneled six million people in Europe into furnaces.” Thanks so much for the input, Sudan.
